DX Central's MW Frequency Challenge - Weeks 25 & 26 Results and full Season 2 recap!


The results for our final weeks of Season 2 of the MW Frequency Challenge - Week 25 (1410-1440) and Week 26 (1460-1480 kHz) - are now available at our Google Site: https://sites.google.com/view/mwfcseason2week25/home


This includes the raw data, analysis tables and highlight video.


That brings us to the end of Season 2, which means it is time for the season-ending recap/results!


You can find the full results at our Google Site: https://sites.google.com/view/mwfcseason2recap/home.


A few callouts though that I wanted to highlight here:

  • Season 2 saw nearly 6,000 logs submitted

  • 101 frequencies were activated (out of 116 freqs with licensed US stations)

  • Of the possible stations that could have been logged on those frequencies, 51% were logged by MWFC participants

  • 42% of all licensed US stations were logged during the course of Season 2

  • Of those 101 frequencies, 7 had every single available licensed US station logged by participants: 1620, 1630, 1640, 1660, 1670, 1680, and 1700

  • 30 countries were logged by participants, with ALL SIX continents (that have AM stations on them) reported

  • All 50 states, plus 9 Canadian provinces were logged during this season

  • Nearly 2,200 total stations were logged in Season 2

  • 51% of all loggings were during sunset/sunrise periods.

  • 90% of all loggings were made using an SDR

  • 53% of all loggings were made using some form of a magnetic loop antenna (W6LVP, Wellbrook, MLA-30, YouLoop, etc.)

A huge thank you to all who participated in this season, you helped make Season 2 the biggest MW Frequency Challenge season to-date!


Tonight's episode of DX Central Live! will be our final for the season. We will reconvene for Season 4 in September. In the meantime, we aren't leaving you with nothing to do over the summer.
